This damn virus is not looking to make a swift exit and people are settling into the idea that they may well be working at home for a while. Balancing their laptop on their rickety kitchen table or on their knee from the sofa will no longer do. Everyone wants and needs and deserves better than that, don’t they.

How to make your home office work (so you do too) 

I have written before about tips for a stylish home office and there are so many ways of making your home office practical and ergonomic whilst retaining the style you love in your home.

My top tip though would be to bring in the fresh flowers- after all this is your home and the scent and beauty will brighten every one of you working days. A quick but always welcome happiness fix.

Do you bring flowers into your home office? It is a staple in mine. I like freesia in my home office as I find the scent so uplifting and they don’t shed their leaves and the water doesn’t become dank and smelly. Bright coloured roses or a simple bunch of daffodils are also massive mood lifters I find and never fail to raise up my spirits and brighten my day. 

Do make a n effort with your office space – you will spend so much time in it and it is definitely worth it as it will enhance your life  in so different many ways,

Who doesn’t have a sofa in their garden or a hot tub on the patio these days? Because staying in is the new going out and staycationing has skyrocketed people are investing much more in their outdoor spaces and making them that gorgeous extra room they really need.  However you do it and whatever type of furniture you buy making your own garden, balcony or deck a really relaxing and social place to be will make staying home that much more fun.

For us an investment in a chiminea has meant we can use outside a lot longer and I am currently extremely tempted by a summer house!

Ocean blues in Interior Design Trends 2021


Interior Design Trends in 2021


According to Home and Gardens ocean blues will be a key colour trend in 2021. I can absolutely understand the logic of this, I think we are all missing the sea! Also blue is one the most calming colours you could possibly imagine and let’s face it 2020 bought us a whole ton of anxiety and disquiet.

When it comes to paint colours warm and natural seems to be the order of the day grey is out, but, as well as ocean blue, olive green and warming reds are in. Is this linked to our thoughts and feelings about the environment possibly?

People are working hard at finding simple ways to stay calm and incorporating them into interior design trends 2021  – an ocean hues colour pallette in their home is just another example of this.

Minimalist art

And what about art? Because art, like paint and furniture, wallpaper and flooring does have specific trends and influences.

I am a huge fan of minimalist wall art and I am so pleased it is having it’s finest hour in 2021.

It makes me so happy and it soothes my heart.

Tapestries are all having their moment and make a lovely wall art idea



Minimalist wall art is about line and movement, about the suggestion rather than the detail of an image.

Your home should be a sanctuary, space and a place for you to retreat too to rest and relax and the simple, uncluttered loveliness of minimalist wall art enables you to feel that peace.

Line art is unfussy and simple and beautiful and set to be the big art design trend in 2021.

So from art to plants to wall colours to organic materials and well-designed home offices and vamped up outdoor spaces..in 2021 we are all taking more care of our homes and gardens (and ourselves) than ever before.
